SPRINGFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) -

Police are investigating after a round was fired during a home invasion late Wednesday.

Officers responded to 9:39 p.m. reports of a home invasion in the 1500 block of Meredith Drive, according to a prepared statement.

When they arrived, they said they were told three male subjects attempted to push through the front door while displaying a firearm.

The trio was unsuccessful at making entry to the home, police said. 

As the males fled, one of them fired a shot from an unknown type of gun into the front door, according to police.

Chilling 911 calls are released following a home invasion that police say was botched. 

The victim, who later identifies herself as Monique, explains that the men tried to bust through the front door while she and her boyfriend were hanging out in the living room.

Victim: "I don't know where they're at! There were about three guys, they had on masks, all masks and they had guns! Oh my god."

And in the scuffle of trying to keep the men out of their home, a single shot was fired at the home.

Victim "Did anybody get shot? They shot."
Dispatch: "Outside of the residence?"
Victim: "Yeah, I don't know where, I just heard a pop."


The victim told the dispatcher she didn't know what the men's motive was or why her house was the one targeted.

Victim: "They had on masks and everything. We don't know who it was."
Dispatcher: "You know if there is a vehicle description or direction of travel?"
Victim: "No, we did not, we did not see nothing."

Witnesses described the subjects as being male and wearing Halloween-style masks.

No one was reported to be hurt.

On Thursday, a FOX 19 NOW crew returned to the apartment where the incident unfolded but the people inside didn't come to the door and refused to speak with us.

Police are still searching for the men responsible.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Springfield Township police: 513-729-1300.
